Product: About 12,000 (9,000 Disney Princess Trikes were recalled in April 2011*). This recall involves the Disney-branded Fairies Plastic Racing Trike. The trike is green and purple with a white seat and yellow wheels. On top of the handlebar, there is a Tinkerbell figure and three other rotating fairy figures. “Disney Fairies” is printed on the label in front of the trike just below the handlebar.

Sold exclusively at: Target stores nationwide from July 2009 through December 2009 for about $50

Date: November 1, 2011

Manufactured in: China

Manufacturer: Kiddieland Toys Limited, of Scituate, Massachusetts (Note: Disney licensed their brand name to Kiddieland)

Problem: The plastic fairy figures protrude from the top of the handle bar posing a laceration hazard if a child falls on them.

Incidents/Injuries: CPSC and Kiddieland have received one report of a 3-year-old girl from Ohio who suffered a facial laceration near her right eye.

Action: Consumers should immediately take the trikes away from children and contact Kiddieland for a free replacement handlebar with an enclosed rotating display.

More Information: For additional information, contact Kiddieland at (800) 430-5307 anytime, or visit the firm’s website at www.kiddieland.com.hk.

*New model Princess Trikes do not have figurines and are not included in the recall.
